Not many people know that not all of the WTC wreckage went to China, believe it or not, 92,000 truckloads of WTC debris are _still_ in NY.

It was buried on Staten Island. 1.46 million tons of it, of which only .5 m. tons are concrete dust, the other million tons is furniture, computers, human remains, insulation, wiring, and most importantly, structural steel, which could still be dug up and subjected to forensic analysis to see how and why it failed.

Rudy Giuliani, in his inexplicable desperation to destroy and remove evidence, repeatedly turned down requests from WTC victims' families to sift through the dust for human remains, before and after the debris was taken away.

The Truth is STILL sitting out there, on Staten Island since 2001, at a site ironically named "Fresh Kills". It should be dug up & analyzed by various government and private forensic experts from around the world.

What do you men by "forensic analysis to see how and why it failed". I think we know why the buildings came down....

Some even made it to the ship building docks... seven tons of WTC steel was used in the construction of the USS New York. A very patriotic and noble gestrure in my opinion. I hope she sees many years of good use.

I'll never forget the smell from the burning.

I have reason to believe my best friend, who worked in the courts downtown, died due to exposure to airborne toxins from the attacks. Following treatment for cancer in 1993-4, she had thorough checkups twice a year. She was declared cancer free every time, until she went to get a cyst lanced in 2004. It was not a cyst, but a malignancy. From no cancer to stage 4 pervasive metastases in only a few months is not the usual course of this disease. She died three months after her diagnosis.

A ship made in New Orleans from debris of the World Trade Center. Her origins are inauspicious, to say the least! I wonder how the government's going to fail to come through on her behalf!
